<h5 id="public-lecture-title-unfolding-humanity-mathematics-at-burning-man">Public Lecture Title: Unfolding Humanity: Mathematics at Burning Man</h5>
<p>A two-ton interactive sculpture called Unfolding Humanity came to life at Burning Man 2018, the world’s most influential large-scale sculpture showcase. Rising 12 feet tall with an 18-foot wingspan in the Nevada desert, the unfolding dodecahedron was illuminated by 16,000 LEDs, requiring 6500 person hours and $40,000 in funds. Its interior, large enough to hold 15 people, was fully lined with massive mirrors, alluding to a possible shape of our universe. The unfolding exterior points to the 500-year-old work of Albrecht Dürer, and the tantalizing open problem of discovering a geometric unfolding for every convex polyhedron. This talk outlines the journey of two mathematicians embracing the role of amateur sculpture artists.</p>

<h5 id="geometry-seminar-title-topological-and-geometric-complexity-for-hyperbolic-3-manifolds">Geometry Seminar Title: Topological and Geometric Complexity for Hyperbolic 3-Manifolds</h5>
<p>We will introduce Scharlemann-Thompson handle decompositions of a 3-manifold, and a generalization of this which we call a graph decomposition. Using these, we define topological measures of complexity for the manifold. In the case where the manifold has additional metric structure, we use Morse and Morse-like functions to give geometric definitions of complexity as well. We will then reveal connections between these geometric and topological complexities.</p>

<p>Title: $v_n$ torsion free H-spaces</p>
<p>Abstract: For some years there have been $(k-1)$-connected irreducible H-spaces, $Y_k$, with no p-torsion
in homology or homotopy. All p-torsion free H-spacesa are products of these spaces and they show up regularly
in the literature. Boardman and I have generalized theses spaces and theorems using $(k-1)$ connected H-spaces,
$Y_k$, that have no $v_n$ torsion in homology or homotopy (to be defined). These spaces seem ripe for exploitation
in the environment of chromatic homotopy theory.</p>

<p>Title: Spectral Mackey functors as multifunctors</p>
<p>Abstract: I will discuss a new perspective on spectral Mackey functors as multifunctors. The main application I will
talk about is the construction of a map from the suspension G-spectrum of a smooth G-manifold M to the equivariant
A-theory of M, whose fiber, on fixed points, exhibits a “tom Dieck style” splitting into stable h-cobordism spaces.<br />

<p>Title: Real Hochschild homology and the norm of $F_2$.</p>
<p>Abstract: We study a spectral sequence computing the homotopy fixed points of the $C_2$ action on the smash square
of $HF_2$. As an application, we give another proof of the $C_2$-Segal conjecture as well as a stronger, ‘quantitative’
variant. This is joint work with Jeremy Hahn.</p>
<p>(break: 3-3:30)</p>
<p>3:30—4:30 Maria Basterra (University of New Hampshire)</p>
<p>Title : Inverting operations in operads</p>
<p>Abstract : We describe a variant of the Dwyer-Kan hammock localization that allows us to construct a localization
for operads with respect to submonoids of one-ary operations. The construction is functorial. It associates to an
operad O and a submonoid of one-ary operations W, an operad LO and a canonical map O to LO which takes elements in W
to homotopy invertible operations.
Furthermore, we give a functor from the category of O-algebras to the category of LO-algebras satisfying an appropriate
universal property.

<h3 id="lecture-1-integral-quadratic-forms-and-applications">Lecture 1. Integral Quadratic Forms and Applications</h3>
<p>Quadratic Diophantine equations (sums of integer squares ) have fascinated mathematicians for centuries however even today some the finer local to global questions are not understood, and the complexity of finding solutions is challenging. We will explain and review these features and highlight some applications, for example to quantum computation with the construction of optimal universal quantum gates.</p>
<h3 id="lecture-2-integer-points-on-affine-cubic-surfaces">Lecture 2. Integer points on affine cubic surfaces</h3>
<p>A cubic polynomial equation in four or more variables tends to have many integer solutions, while one in two variables has a limited number of such solutions. There is a body of work establishing results along these lines. On the other hand very little is known in the critical case of three variables. For special such cubics, which we call Markoff surfaces, a theory can be developed. We will review some of the tools used to deal with these and related problems when the integers are replaced by integers in say a real quadratic field.</p>
<h3 id="lecture-3-applications-of-points-on-subvarieties-of-tori">Lecture 3. Applications of points on subvarieties of tori</h3>
<p>The intersection of the division group of a finitely generated subgroup of a torus with an algebraic subvariety has been understood for some time (Lang, Laurent,…). After a brief review of some of the tools in the analysis and their recent extensions (Andre’-Oort Conjectures ), we give some old and new applications; periodicity of Betti numbers, algebraicity of Painleve’ equations, and the additive structure of spectra of quantum graphs.</p>

<p>Over sandwiches, we discussed with Sherry her educational
background, from Puerto Rico to to Harvard to MIT. We learned how she competed on both the US and Puerto Rico team in the International
Mathematical Olympiad, always as one of the strongest competitors, and how she went on to coach the US Women’s team for the Girls’
Mathematical Olympiad in 2010. Sherry discussed how her personal areas of research (low dimensional topology, operator theory) in math have
been so largely determined by the mentors she could find. Gong explained the importance for her of picking good mentors as an undergrad and
graduate student, and how to go about securing a good mentor, which opened up to a general room discussion of the most aggressive/intense
moves people had made to try to secure a mentor. We rounded out the meeting by discussing the process of applying in the field, and how to
pick research projects, make connections, and send emails to secure your own chance of getting your CV considered.</p>

<p>Geometric Topology and Algebraic Topology are areas of mathematics in which one is trying to understand aspects of the global shape of objects, with tools for doing this coming from various mathematical disciplines. Most classically, the objects of study are curves, surfaces, and higher dimensional analogues of these - manifolds, but modern topology also studies things like the ‘shape’ of algebraic structures like number systems satisfying an associative law. Symmetries, in the guise of group theory, also play a major role. Applications range from the use of curvature and symmetry in mathematical physics to the use of homology theory in the emerging field of topological data analysis.</p>

<summary><strong>Planar Ising model: from combinatorics to CFT and s-embeddings</strong></summary>
<div style="padding:10px">In theoretical physics, the critical planar Ising model serves as a toy example, in which many precursors of Conformal Field Theory objects and structures exist and can be studied directly in discrete, before passing to the small mesh size limit. Mathematically, a number of results on convergence and conformal invariance of such limits were established during the last decade, both for correlation functions and for interfaces (domain walls) arising in the model. In this mini-course we plan to discuss
<ul>
<li> discrete fermions and the Kadanoff-Ceva spin-disorder formalism - crucial tools that allow one to analyse the planar Ising model;</li>
<li> streamlined version of the classical computation of the magnetization via orthogonal polynomials; </li>
<li> results on convergence of critical correlation functions (energy densities, spins, ...) in bounded domains to CFT limits;</li>
<li> recent ideas on appropriate embeddings of weighted planar graphs that play the same role for the planar Ising model as Tutte’s barycentric embeddings do for random walks, allowing one to use discrete complex analysis techniques beyond "regular" lattices.</li>

<summary><strong>Fluctuations of 1D exclusion processes: exact analysis and hydrodynamic approach</strong></summary>
<div style="padding:10px">
One dimensional exclusion processes are stochastic processes in which many particles perform random walks under exclusion constraint. They have been playing important role in the fields of stochastic interacting systems in probability theory and non-equilibrium statistical mechanics in physics. For the last two decades, fluctuations of the processes have been studied quite intensively, since the seminal work by Johansson[1-1] on totally asymmetric simple exclusion process (TASEP) showing that the current fluctuation of TASEP with step initial condition is described by the GUE Tracy-Widom distribution. There have been a vast accumulation of generalizations and related results, but there are still many intriguing questions and problems to be solved.
<br /><br />
In these lectures, we discuss a few new directions in the studies of fluctuations of exclusion processes. We also stress that such studies provide valuable insight to other methods based on hydrodynamic ideas which can be applied to a wider class of interacting particle systems. In the first lecture we review the basics of the subject. After introducing a few models such as the asymmetric simple exclusion process(ASEP) and the Kardar-Parisi-Zhang (KPZ) equation, we explain how one can study their fluctuations for the case of TASEP[1-2]. In the second lecture, we show that an approach introduced in [2] using Frobenius determinant can be applied to a large class of models in a unified manner. In the third lecture we explain our recent result on a two-species exclusion process and connection to the nonlinear fluctuating hydrodynamics[3]. In the last lecture we will consider an application of the techniques to study the large derivation in the symmetric exclusion process[4-1,2].
